    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for Lockton for about 2 years. This company has some of the most dynamic, innovative, and collaborative teams. Every single team works very hard to exceed clients' expectations. Teams don't even wait for the elevators, they take the stairs if all elevators are busy. That's how eager people are to deliver projects before deadlines. Leadership teams are engaging and truly innovative in their approach to everything. Compensation and bonus package is very generous. Benefits package is outstanding in every single way. The building is state of the art. It's typical to see free pizza day for the entire company during a snow day. This is the company to be. Monthly happy hours with full bar and full catering.

    Cons

    Some teams are very protective of their territory. No real marketing department or marketing leadership.

    Pros

    Fast paced, sink or swim environment. Those who are A players do well and are rewarded financially and with growth opportunities. Forward thinking company that really is committed to providing exceptional client service. Culture is great.

    Cons

    Workload can be challenging. Competence is rewarded with additional client assignments. There are opportunities to improve technology to streamline efficiency. Each office sets its own processes so if you work with multiple offices, the approaches will vary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Good pay, family feel, flexible - just a great work environment

    Cons

    Only 1 remote day a week - if you like to have an "office" - only Sr Level and some Producers get office, the rest of the employees have workstations

    Advice to Management

    When hiring new Associates, i would recommend that they are vetted properly so they can do the job they are hired to do

    rampant discrimination and favoritism, employee complaints are not taken seriously, women get paid $10K-$30K less than their misogynistic male counterparts, toxic management, clueless executives allow the mistreatment of lower level employees, useless HR department that ignore employee complaints - don't bother!

    Advice to Management

    Wake UP! listen to your unhappy frustrated employees. office morale in EVERY department gets worse by the week. stop blaming the usual scapegoats and face reality!!

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are related to a higher up you will receive all the opportunities you could wish for. Men are treated with respect.

    There is a nice open area on the top floor with kegs.

    Cons

    It is definitely a boys club and women aren’t treated with respect in the way men are. Management will make promises regarding promotions and then when it is time to fulfill their promise will back off. Overwhelming feeling of negativity. Management doesn’t acknowledge that the culture has worsened over time, so it doesn’t seem like steps are being made to fix anything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and take the necessary steps to fix the culture. Replace the employees who are leaving instead of just piling more work on the ones who are still there. Make sure opportunities are provided to the best people and not just the people with the right last name.
